Make Music Cincinnati
Mon, 07 Jun 2021

On Monday, June 21, over 1,000 cities across the globe will be participating in Make Music Day, an international celebration of music held annually on the Summer Solstice. Cincinnati will be no exception, turning the city into a stage with free outdoor music events throughout the city.

Classics For Kids has teamed up with Make Music Cincinnati to bring the music to Washington Park with an event for kids of all ages. The event will run from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and will include a variety of ways for kids to experience music. 

Activities will include:

  • A performance of Ferdinand the Bull with Classics for Kids host Naomi Lewin and local violinist Yu-Kun Hsiang
  • Bucket drumming sessions with Band in a Bus
  • A music lab provided by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Antonio Violins (string Instruments)
  • An audio lab with the Music Resource Center
  • Make your own instrument using upcycled materials with UC College-Conservatory of Music Prep Department
  • Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions with brass instruments provided by Linton Chamber Music

The event will culminate in everyone taking part in a handbell performance of the Bill Withers’ classic ‘Lean on Me.’

Of course, it wouldn’t be fun in the sun without some icy cold treats, so we’ll also be providing popsicles to the first 100 kids who attend the event and complete their event passport.

Kids of all ages are welcome at this event. We hope to see you there!
